Hey everybody,

I haven't been able to find out an answer for this. I bought a MB467LL/A model Macbook (2.4ghz previous unibody version that became the Macbook pro). Local store had them on closeout and it was a hot deal. Anyway, it was brand new and had a 0% battery when I brought it home. It's been about 12 hours and still isn't quite charged fully. Almost though.

Is this normal for a brand new battery? I can't imagine it usually takes 12 hours to fully charge the battery. I've never had a computer ship with a dead battery before so I'm wondering if it was bad or simply that's how they come now a days.

Thanks for any advice.

Good news, after draining it, the second charge only took a couple of hours. Must have been because it was brand new with a completely discharged battery. Likely sat for a couple of months that way.
